Microsoft annual application developer conference kickoffs today in Seattle, U.S. The conference includes keynotes on upcoming announcements and insights around artificial intelligence, mixed reality, and the cloud. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella along with Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group, Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President, Windows and Microsoft engineers are presenting their broader overview of company’s forays into emerging technologies.
The Microsoft Build 2018 is similar to developers events organised by companies like Facebook, Google, and Apple but the differentiation is that there is likely to be a lot of focus on live coding onstage. Microsoft have announced newer capabilities of AI, new updates on Azure, cloud computing platform, and mixed-reality developments. Also, there has been several announcements on partnership such as Qaulcomm among others.
